[OpenAFS] openafs, aklog, and NAT

How does aklog fail?

Note that krb5 does not deal well with NAT because of how IP Addresses
are encoded into tickets.  Krb4 does not have this problem; so if you
wind up using the v4 aklog it should work, however, v5 may fail to
actually obtain the tickets.

So, in what way does "kerberos" work on those machines behind NAT?
Yes, you can get your TGT, but can you get any OTHER service tickets?
